I'm totally rating this PG-13 to.
Are you ready for the gruesome truth?...Here we go!
So your in labor.
Your water broke and you have to put a maxi pad on and pray it absorbs enough for you to make it to the hospital in time-- wear black pants!
The nurse takes you back and will check to see if or how much your dilated. Not so comfy.
You are exposed. yep. Spread eagle. Thats hot.
They give you a stool softening pill... Not sure if it was effective or not. If I had to chose, I would say not so much.--OUCH.
You can't wipe. You must squirt.
You will still look pregnant. Don't stress.
They recommend 6 weeks to workout, I say, go with how you feel. Walking, light weights, lunges, squating.. etc.. I waited 5 weeks before I went back to teaching.. But took it slow and really listened to my body.
They also recommend waiting 6 weeks before sex. (yep, I said it) I say.. wait about 10. Double OUCH! (& I even had a C-section)
Mesh panties are fabulous.
Your milk comes in.. You can take out anything with your chest.
You also pump and lean to reach for something and you spill--- don't cry over spilled milk. (you finally learn the real meaning of that saying).....& you will probably still cry.
The BEST thing in the whole world is holding your new baby until they fall asleep on your chest and you can just lay back and relax knowing your whole world has changed for the better.
The first time you see your baby face to face was the single moment I realized how amazing the woman body is and how blessed you are to create such a perfect little body.
Your relationship with your spouse or significant other is strengthened and challenged at times. But you two are stronger and more understanding then ever before.
worth every second.
Q. If you are pregnant or have had a baby what was something you discovered post baby or pre pregnancy that nobody seemed to mention?
